No other musical artwork has been the cause of such legends, daring theories or controversies, as the Requiem. The circumstances surrounding the emergence of this work, which was left unfinished by the composer strongly raised early speculations, which were far removed from the actual facts. The 19th century leaned toward the legendary embellishment of historical events, in particular when details were unknown or could be verified for certain. The Requiem was a prime example of this phenomenon.
